The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has received the Gold Award for Best Overseas Conference Centre at the Meetings & Incentive Travel (M&IT) Awards 2023. The award, presented at a gala banquet in London, was attended by numerous industry professionals from the UK and around the world. The M&IT Industry Awards, which recognize excellence in the field, are determined by votes from UK event organizers.
According to a press release, the CCD has now secured this honour for the eleventh time, having previously won Silver in 2011 and 2017.
